Default Legendary Auctions 1906 Word Series Ticket

How can anyone say that this ticket is a World Series ticket from 1906? There is a hand written date, but that could have been written at any time for many different reasons. The two 1907 ones at least have a reference to it being a World Series game. Yet the 1906 has nothing. If anything the reference for the rain check to be used for any game during the season makes it seam like this is a regular season ticket.

Also Legendary says the ticket can't be authenticated:
Quote:
Please note: PSA was unable to encapsulate this ultra-rare ticket, though the inability was doubtless due to the absence of exemplars.
So how sure can anyone be that this really was a ticket from the 1906 World Series? Also what would stop someone from writing dates on other 1906 tickets and passing them off as the same if this is the same style of ticket they used for the main season?


I want to say I am not asking this because I know the answer and want to "trap" people, but I really don't know and am curious. I don't deal with vintage tickets and I have been pondering this since I first read the auction write up.

It's not a 1906 WS ticket.

Nevermind...posted a link to an NL 1906 WS Ticket stub. But would it surprise anyone that Comiskey was too cheap to have World Championship tickets made up and just used regular season tickets instead?

The Washington Shirt store advert on back of tix is dead giveaway. They didn't have a shoe dept until 1911 or later. They went into the shoe business after the Triangle Shirtwaist fire, when new safety regs went into effect making the shirt business less profitable, so they "branched out" into the footwear trade.

Anyone notified Legendary about this? Seems like if that's indisputable then it's impossible this is a 1906 WS ticket stub.

Interesting. I was just wondering how they could confirm it since they didn't cover that (other than saying they trusted the cosignor) and you came from the other side and gave a convincing reason why it couldn't be one.

Anybody else think the print they used in that new catalog is tough to read?

Barry Halper probably wrote the date and game etc on that ticket. Maybe he traded someone Cy Young's ipod for it or whatever.

Yes. I brought this up in another thread. I found myself resorting to only looking through the pictures after trying to read about the 1903 baseball.
